Wrong politicians no longer live in the U.S. – No sooner have the Democrats gained a firmer foothold in the White House than they have begun mopping up their opponents. In the simplest and most self-explanatory way possible, through deprivation of money.
Wrong politicians no longer live in the U.S.
MilitaryEzyInfo.com – In principle, everything is logical and perfectly natural. The Western system of democracy, according to its theoretical description, functions very simply. Certain groups in society support with money specific politicians (in the broad sense, from individual personalities to social movements and political parties) whose platforms and programs correspond to their interests.
Hence the mechanism of direct action develops. The greater the public’s interest in a certain line or position, the more money is donated to the political elements promoting them. Thus expanding their resource base for their activities and increasing their chances to occupy a larger share of decisive seats in the state apparatus. Especially in parliament. So they can initiate and adopt the “necessary laws” there.
Money in Politics
The opposite is also true. Politicians are not allowed to use their own money for political activities. This is so that the oligarchs cannot seize power. Consequently, those individuals and parties whose positions cease to please “society” are deprived of their sources of funding, and eventually go off the stage.
Bet on Both Camps
But that is in theory. Practice looked different. The vast majority of individuals and organizations that financed politics preferred to bet on both camps at once. On the one hand, in order to minimize the risks of error in choosing a “horse in the race”, on the other hand, in order to be able to influence all parts of the complex mechanism of the balance of interests.
No more Marriott money
And now the owners of the money have begun to be explicitly defined in their preferences. And so that politicians “with the wrong views” would not bother them further, donors have taken the simple and familiar route of stopping giving them money.
Thus, for example, the press secretary of the Marriott hotel chain officially announced about ceasing of financial support from the hotel chain to those politicians who voted against Joe Biden’s confirmation as the U.S. president. And what are they thinking, people, are not giving them money to undermine a legitimate and fair election. And this is not the only case.
Ford Motor Co. and more than 100 other companies surveyed by Popular Information informed the public about a similar initiative. Among them, Boston Scientific, a medical device manufacturer, and Blue Cross Blue Shield, an insurance company.
Some, however, have done more cunningly. According to The Wall Street Journal, two of the largest financial giants in the United States, JP Morgan, and Citigroup, decided “for now” to stop political donations altogether “until the situation becomes clearer.” The former for six months, the latter for three months.
It looks nice in media terms, and even somewhat pathos-like, but the meaning of this action is obvious. The main goal of the American financial oligarchic revolution has been achieved. The supreme power in the country has been taken. There is no need for “shooting in the squares”, betting simultaneously on the red and blue.
The power of democracy
You can move on to point operations, but here, first, the candidates of the winning clan must clearly explain what, how, and to what extent they can be useful to donors further.
It is also clear that the financial river that sustains the U.S. Republican Party is in danger of drying up. The cleansing of America’s political field of “the wrong politicians” has begun.
Because “democracy is the power of Democrats”, not what everyone thought.
